What we like about this property

We love how the spirit of this old farmhouse has been restored with such care and sensitivity for it’s cultural significance. Transformed into a stylish luxury B&B in Portugal’s Algarve region, it’s a breath of fresh air that combines historic beauty, serenity and sense of space and comfort.

Description

Situated on a hill overlooking the picturesque Algarve valleys below, this two hundred year old farmhouse is a stunningly beautiful and intact example of the traditional “montes” that are so closely identified with the area. Just outside of the little town of São Brás de Alportel and a short drive north of Faro, the property immerses you in the authentic feel of the Algarve. 

Restored and designed by Flemish couple Frank and Veronique, the concept was to create a destination of simplicity and tranquility with an appreciation of the uniquely rural life of the region to share with guests.

Each of the buildings have been stylishly restored without disturbing their original character using natural stone and wood, and an almost monastic minimalism and serenity.  

Featuring a total of five en suite rooms, each has been renovated for maximum space and privacy with all the modcons cleverly integrated for comfort. Accommodating from two to four guests each, the property sleeps fourteen total and provides the intimacy of a private estate. 

There are several common areas inside and out with lovely gardens and orchards, a gorgeous black mosaic swimming pool for cooling off in the summer and delightful spots to laze about in the hammocks and loungers. 

This small bed and breakfast in Portugal is a peaceful place of unique historic beauty, and serenity.

Wifi throughout, satellite cable TV, Bluetooth audio, Super king-size beds with heavenly mattresses and Egyptian cotton bedding, artisan soaps and personal amenities, AC in each room.

    A heavenly place…

    Almost one year after our first visit, we returned to Farmhouse of the Palms, this time accompanied by good friends.
    A tricky thing advising a place you adore, but they were also blown away by this B&B : the friendliness and professionalism of the owners, the beautiful building with all amenities you can think of, the scenery, tranquility, the spacious rooms, breakfast served under the carob tree…
    We once again enjoyed local Maria’s cooking on Sunday evening. The icing on the cake was a Fado performance by local artists but known all over Portugal.The impressing guitar playing and beautiful voice set the perfect mood.
    Thanks again Frank, Veronique and Jules.
    See you next year !!!
    Lieve and Hans

    Perfect…

    It’s the perfect place, the view is amazing! The hosts are really kind! Breakfast is delicious (and it changes everyday). The garden is really beautiful. The room is really good and comfortable. I defintely recommend it!

    Deserving of its exceptionally high rating!

    Given the outstanding reviews we were expecting to be at least slightly disappointed. We were not. It really deserves the highest marks. What makes this place special is not the physical attributes of the place (which are noteworthy) but the attitude and genuine helpfulness of Frank and his wife. Nothing is too much trouble for them and they helped in so many ways, with Frank doubling as a tour guide and great promoter of the region, while also serving and tidying up. As a Belgian he speaks about five languages and seemed to use them all! Everything is done with such good taste and attention to detail. Comfortable, stylish and beautifully decorated. It’s almost like staying in a wealthy friend’s gorgeous villa. In terms of location, one must be prepared to drive significant distances but we found the driving around this part of the Algarve to be easy and stress-free, and the distances aren’t so bad. We can’t recommend the Farmhouse highly enough. We just hope they will have a room for us when we wish to return!

    Yes full marks
    Not often do you find nearly 100% full marks but this B&B has it and deserves it. Managed by nice Belgium couple the B&B is in an old farmhouse which has been stunningly renovated.
    The reception was very welcoming and the building impressive.
    We stayed two nights and will be back. The pearl of the B&B is their breakfast.

    Definitely the best B&B in the area! Huge rooms decorated with great taste and purity. Véronique and Frank made us feel welcome from the first moment.

    Fabulous B&B
    We stayed at the Farmhouse for 4 nights in October in the two bedroom suite which was very roomy and extremely comfortable. Frank and Veronique are wonderful hosts. The breakfasts were delicious and very filling. Frank’s knowledge of the area really assisted us in our exploration of the region. One evening a local chef came to the Farmhouse to cook a wonderful three course meal – a highlight of our stay. Overall our stay was excellent and I would highly recommend this B&B.

    A true gem!

    Our stay got off to a perfect start the minute we met our wonderful hosts, Frank and Veronique. They were kind and welcoming and eager to share their incredible farmhouse with us, as if we were long lost family. Every nook and corner of the Farmhouse is gorgeous and tranquil, with an incredible attention to elegance and detail, without feeling precious or off limits. The rooms are spacious and clean, the pool is inviting and well maintained, the grounds are lush, and the breakfasts (under a majestic carob tree) are delicious. My boyfriend and I stayed two nights, but we would have stayed twenty if our schedule allowed it. Frank and Veronique were especially gracious with their time and attention, sharing their intimate knowledge of the surrounding country with us and even booking us a reservation at an incredible local restaurant. If you’re considering a visit, my only advice is to book your stay early, as Farmhouse of the Palms has only a handful of rooms and will fill up fast! We cannot wait to return!
